It would be difficult to fault this hotel in any way. The staff were helpful, well presented and always had a smile. Nothing appeared too much trouble for them. The restaurant on the first floor overlooked the sea. The choice for breakfast was unbelievable and was presented extremely well. The choices left nothing to the imagination. There were no fry ups!!! just fresh well prepared food. The service was tops and the staff well presented and obliging. Our room 306, was a fair size with a terrace and grass area overlooking the sea. Well prepared and cleaned every day. Evening meals were again tops but at a price. Nothing is cheap in Sardinia, but you get what you pay for. My ONLY downside which I appreciate may appear petty, is that there should of been bottled water in the room and replaced daily. On arrival there was one bottle but never replaced. For a hotel of this class I was surprised that this was not taken into account. Cost would of been minima. Would recommend for adults of any age.

"Competitively priced hotel in a beautiful setting"
Great first impressions. Attractive lobby. Efficient friendly check in and room transfer.
***Connecting to and staying connected to Wi-Fi was a constant problem even in the lobby ***
Also had problems at Tanit, Casablanca and the Airport so may be a general problem.
We booked the lead in room type - hill view, actually had a partial sea view so were happy!
Room was well presented but small and lacked storage. Requested more hangers which arrived quickly.
No complimentary fruit or drinks or water to welcome us, which is usually offered in a 5* hotel.
Bed was ok but had only one pillow each which were flat and hard, so asked for thicker softer pillows.
The price of 50 Euros each for guests on B&B was reasonable for a delicious 4 course Al a Carte meal which was professionally served. However, the best tables on the terrace are reserved for guests on half board. B&B guests get what's left, inside if its busy.
Breakfast is best early. No Egg Chef, only pre boiled eggs and scrambled eggs.
The Rolex Swan Cup Party, took place near the pool on 13/9/14.
Hotel guests were restricted to a buffet on the night at 70 Euros per head. The selection was disappointing. We were able to watch the event from the upper terrace.
The beach, decks, pools & grounds are lovely. All staff charming and helpful, particularly Donatto & Franco the Concierge who recommended Tanit, Poltu Quatu, - excellent, and arranged a full day boat trip which we thoroughly enjoyed.
We have just spent a wonderful week at this hotel. The grounds are truly beautiful and the views are magical: mountains, clear aqua sea and tranquil, beautifully maintained grounds. We were the first guests to stay here after an extensive and tasteful refurbishment. Everything is cream and beige and very understated and elegant. The staff were fantastic; they couldn't do enough for us. You are greeted personally by the manager and the restaurant staff, with the considerate Christian at the helm, were thoughtful, attentive and charming. Christian rose especially early to prepare breakfast for us on our last day and even included sandwiches for our journey home. The restaurant provides a delicious menu and a complimentary glass of wine. We would thoroughly recommend this hotel to those seeking tranquility and stunning scenery in tasteful surroundings with staff whose aim is to please. Thank you for a memorable and very special stay.
We realised as soon as we arrived that we were at a very exclusive place, within 24hrs had settled in to the exquisite surroundings. The food was superb, especially the daily lunch experience!Wonderful setting, we had the most relaxing holiday ever! We will return!
The lobby is large and serene, so we could recommend this as a spot for beach lovers who appreciate a gracious and expensive vacation--a place to which the rich who don't particularly enjoy good food might haul in their steamer trunks and vacation for the summer. Our room was spacious enough, though a tight closet made it useful only for one person. The bathroom, while lovely, had only a small shower stall, but the view and patio were great! Balconies are side-by side, and we were lucky to have pretty quiet neighbors for our stay, though a boisterous group checked in the morning of our departure. Breakfast was generous and well-cooked, and the view wonderful! We understood that restaurant options would be limited, so ate a solid lunch in La Maddalena en route and enjoyed a lovely spritz and snacks in the bar for dinner one night. We gave the hotel restaurant a try the next night and found it marginal and expensive, with no wine by the glass available. Day trip options are limited; we visited a very quiet Porto Cervo but were deterred from a day trip to Corsica by the distance on a twisting road.
It's a lovely, clean hotel, better than the pictures that are shown on the website. The staff are helpful and very friendly especially the poolside staff. Our room didn't have a view it overlooked a rock wall 3 metres away, this was disapointing as the hotel didn't appear to be fully booked and we stayed for 6 nights. A room with a view would make the experience better, as you could then use the private balcony to read or enjoy a drink.

We spent 1 week here end of septembre and it was a very nice place to stay. You find everything you need for having nice holidays. The pools and the beaches are really nice. You can have great cocktails with a beautiful vue on the sea. I don't know if it was because it was septembre but it was quiet and so really good place if you need to relax. Baja Sardinia is a small town but you get everything you need to have good time. The centre is at 5 min by foot from the hotel and you find restaurant and good ice cream seller.

the staff could not have been more helpful and friendy.
the only minus side was that there did not seem to be any light snacks offered at lunchtime and the breakfasts could have had a bit more imagination.

Playground for the rich, the waters of the Emerald Coast sparkle like the precious jewel, matched only by the diamonds of those who flock here. In the 1960s, the Aga Khan discovered this idyllic 35-mile coastal strip of sandy beaches, studded with 80 bays and idyllic coves, and made it an exclusive private resort. Low-rise buildings blending harmoniously with the landscape and beautiful (free) beaches ensure the coast’s enduring popularity.
